recipe: raw apple cinnamon gr-oatmeal 

Cleansing diets are hot this New Year—two in our office started Monday!—the rest of us are anxious to eat well to be well. Following is a healthy breakfast or lunch option—worthy of the prep time!

Fyi, oat groats are hulled oat kernels, in their purest form before they’re rolled, steel-cut, or milled into flour. Unlike many grains, oats are rarely processed to remove their germ and bran— which is what makes them a whole grain.

First, soak oat groats in water for 12 hours. Drain and soak another 12 hours in fresh water.

Next, in a food processor, blend:
1C soaked groats
2 tblsp water
2 tblsp raw honey
1 tsp cinnamon
½ C chopped apples, or any fruit you prefer
¼ C walnuts, optional

Blend 3-5 times, scraping down the sides, until it’s the consistency you like. Enjoy!

Thanks to megan, product manager’s assistant, for this submission.
